FC Twente defender Douglas has agreed a new contract which will keep him at the Enschede club until June 2012.

The 20-year-old Brazilian made 12 appearances for Twente last season and had reportedly attracted interest from Ajax, but the player´s agent confirmed Douglas is happy to stay where he is and work under new coach Steve McClaren.

"There were more clubs who wanted to have him," Raymond van Lierop told De Telegraaf. "But we think a longer stay with FC Twente is the best thing for his development at the moment."
